    You should just get a white hood with MAGA in big letters.

    That should keep you busy at the bus stop.

    Apparently, Mueller handed a lot of stuff off to the state AG, which would prevent any corrupt person from issuing pardons.

    Further, he handed off a number of other leads to other investigators, such as the Inauguration Committee slush fund.

    Politics, punditry and human nature being as they are, the late-Friday news that special prosecutor Robert Mueller’s final report has been transmitted to the attorney general (and will be described in summary form to Congress very soon) has spurred a frenzy of speculation, and the first of many leaks (credible and otherwise). The most prominent detail is that Mueller isn’t recommending any additional indictments in his probe of possible collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign or obstruction of justice by the president himself.

    If that is true, you can be sure that the president and his allies will gloat that even Robert Mueller admits that his investigation was a witch hunt producing nothing but fresh evidence that the president has been unjustly persecuted by rogue elements in the FBI and the Justice Department.

    ust because Mueller considers a certain batch of evidence not grounds for a prosecution on his own motion doesn’t mean it might not create future legal and political jeopardy for Trump. Other prosecutors pursuing other angles could pick up on his findings. And to the extent the Justice Department doubts a sitting president can be indicted at all, the report could provide evidence that will sit, ticking like a time bomb, until he leaves office.

    Michael Cohen’s conviction for campaign finance violations is a potentially direct threat given Cohen’s allegations about the president’s personal involvement in hush payment to women with explosive charges of adultery against Trump that surfaced in 2016.

    But separate federal investigations of Trump’s business dealings by the staff of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York are even more potentially deadly, and they involve matters well beyond the scope of the Mueller investigation, as Politico reported last month:

    Manhattan-based federal prosecutors can challenge Trump in ways Mueller can’t. They have jurisdiction over the president’s political operation and businesses — subjects that aren’t protected by executive privilege, a tool Trump is considering invoking to block portions of Mueller’s report. From a PR perspective, Trump has been unable to run the same playbook on SDNY that he’s used to erode conservatives’ faith in Mueller, the former George W. Bush-appointed FBI director. Legal circles are also buzzing over whether SDNY might buck DOJ guidance and seek to indict a sitting president.


    The threat was highlighted when SDNY prosecutors ordered officials from Trump’s inaugural committee to hand over donor and financial records. It was the latest aggressive move from an office that has launched investigations into the president’s company, former lawyer and campaign finance practices. New York prosecutors have even implicated Trump in a crime.

    Add it all up and the result is a spate of hard-to-stymie, legally perilous probes that appears on track to drag on well into Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign. SDNY stands poised to carry on Mueller’s efforts whenever the special counsel’s office closes shop

    http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2019/...er-report.html

    The U.S. Attorney's Office in Manhattan and other investigators also are reportedly investigating Trump's 2017 inaugural committee, looking to establish whether it may have broken the law by, among other ways, raising money from foreigners.

    So, even if Meuller's got no more than six Trump underlings, he's done a good job. But this is just the end of his particular investigation.

    Here's a pretty good summary of the Trump-related criminal investigations still proceeding:

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    The state AG is answerable to the Justice Dept.

    Who is in charge of the Justice Dept?

    Nope. A state AG is answerable to the people of his state, not to any federal officer.

    Someone who has no power over state AGs.

    I don't think you're correct about that, but you might find this of interest.



    New York's attorney general wants lawmakers to change the state's criminal laws so that potential pardons by President Trump wouldn't necessarily protect people from being charged in the state system.

    Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, a Democrat, wrote to Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo and legislative leaders in Albany that in some cases, as the law stands now, it might be possible for Trump to pardon someone charged with a federal crime and for that to protect the person from prosecution within New York state.
